Johnson, who’s currently ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings, has been wearing Adidas’ Tour360 Boost shoes the last few years, which includes his ascension to the world’s top ranking and his first major victory. But when he stepped on the range for the first event of the 2017 FedExCup Playoffs, he was wearing something different from Adidas.

While Adidas is not currently commenting on the new shoes, they look to be an upgraded version of the Tour360 Boost with some slight adjustments. They still look to have Boost technology in the soles, but the toe box looks to be clean, without the seams on the toe for which Tour360 has been known in the past. What do you think about Johnson’s new shoes from Adidas?

Update: 8/23/17

We spotted Johnson wearing a slightly different colorway on Wednesday with blue hits on the Adidas stripes instead of the white stripes pictured above.

    All new shoes are a little bit hard on your feet.
    Highlighted more so when you are walking miles on rough terrain .

    I found 360 Boost shoes very comfy out of the box , but not everyone is the same .

    also poor socks can factor in the way the shoes rub away the skin

    These shoes are horrible for my feet. I wore a pair for 18 holes and pretty much tore up my feet. Theses are suppose to come out of the box ready. I think not!

    For sale: $100.00 last years model size 12, wore once.

    I love the comfyness of the shoes. I still hate the fact that a premium pair of shoes like this makes it look like styrofoam is the latest and greatest technology that they have. If i am paying that much for shoes they can at least clean that up.

    I hate Boost. It feels like I’m on springs. Uncontrollable springs. I don’t need to jump at the ball. I need shoes that feel steady and keep me planted. I loved the Tour360 without the Boost and would still be playing them–especially if they came with BOA! Those were, truly, the best shoes I ever wore onto a golf course.

    Get rid of Boost, bring in BOA, and sign me up for life.

    I’ve worn the 360 series for a few years and they keep getting better with each generation, most comfortable shoes I’ve had. And these new ones without the seams is much improved looks wise. Looking forward to a new pair next season I guess.

    ‘Boost technology’ in golf shoes? Do they increase your height by several inches?

What Adam Scott said about his new 681.AS irons

Published

on

Adam Scott has used the same irons — Titleist Forged 680 — for the better part of 10 years.

“When you’re old and stubborn, you like what you like,” the 41-year-old told PGATOUR.COM.

Indeed, as he has transitioned into Titleist’s latest woods and wedges, the 14-time PGA TOUR winner has remained steadfast in playing his 2003 680 irons with KBS Tour 130 X shafts.

It was interesting, then, to see Scott with a different — but very similar — set of irons in the bag ahead of THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT.

Adam Scott’s trust Titleist 680 8-iron

Scott’s new 681.AS Forged 8-iron

At a glance, the visually stunning irons look identically shaped to the 680s we’re used to seeing in Scott’s bag — similar large muscle pad on the rear of the club, similar hosel transition, similar generous amount of offset, similar topline. However, the irons looked substantially less worn and were stamped with 681.AS on the hosel.

What’s going on here?

Titleist declined to comment, but PGATOUR.COM caught up with Scott, who shared some details. As it turns out the new irons are the same…sort of.

Before digging into the 681.AS, we asked Scott why he doesn’t simply continue playing 680 irons, and when a set wears out, replace them with another. The answer, he said, was simple. Titleist “just ran out of original sets,” which the company stopped producing in 2005.

What to do? Scour eBay and used club stores? Frequent garage sales?

Scott indicated Titleist engineers took a different tack: They made CAD (computer-aided design) copies of his beloved 680s and CNC-machined what he called, “basically the same clubs.”

“Thanks to technology,” he said, “they’re as exact a replica as you can get, but with the way they’ve been made, I could argue it’s a more solid head with a more solid strike.

“I’ve been stuck on the 680s for a long time now,” he added. “…We’ve tried some stuff here and there. We tried bending the 620 MBs earlier this year, which I actually used at the Masters. I’ve been looking for 12 months for that new fresh set with good feel in the hands and good vibes, and we just couldn’t get there, so they took this project on.”

He continued: “It’s very nice for me that Titleist was able to do that. I know what I know. I’ve played it so long, I’m at a point where I think it’s detrimental to go searching and trying to change. I know how I play, and I know what I need to play well.”

Update: Titleist offered this statement, “This week at the PGA TOUR’s CJ CUP, Titleist Brand Ambassadors Justin Thomas and Adam Scott are each putting new sets of prototype Titleist muscle back irons in play. Feedback from the best players in the world is a cornerstone of the Titleist R&D process, and these prototype irons (621.JT and 681.AS) have been developed in collaboration with each player to better understand some key design variables such as shaping, sole design and CG placement – that ultimately may find their way into future Titleist iron development. We look forward to sharing additional updates on these prototypes as we gain feedback and learn more from each player’s experience.”
